The Persistence of Violence in South Africa's Schools: In Search of Solutions
Le Roux, C. S.; Mokhele, P. R.
Africa Education Review, v8 n2 p318-335 2011
Crime, abuse and violence against school children are grave problems in South African schools and are undisputedly on the increase. This article highlights aspects of hostile and violent behaviour in South Africa that contribute to the persistence of school violence. The problem is complex and there are no simple solutions. The article puts forward suggestions that deal with the root causes of aggression, abuse and violence to help schools prevent and deal with this serious issue and become the nurturing learning environments that they should be.
